What types of networking / volunteer work do you do in and outside of legal marketing? I have been a member of the Legal Marketing Association for ten years – and have been an active volunteer for the duration of that time. Volunteering with LMA has made my career in legal marketing. I met people each step of the way – from my time as a committee member to my time as President of a chapter – that shaped my career and provided me the opportunity to grow.
What advice would you give LMA members about networking / volunteering? Do it! The purpose of this organization is to provide the opportunity to learn from and connect with your peers. Investing in your membership through active participation will return to you tenfold of the effort you put in.
